Saul replied,1 "You are not able to go out against this Philistine and fight him; you are only a boy, and he has been a fighting man from his youth."
But David said to Saul, "Your servant has been keeping his father's sheep. When a lion2 or a bear came and carried off a sheep from the flock,
I went after it, struck it and rescued the sheep from its mouth. When it turned on me, I seized3 it by its hair, struck it and killed it.
Your servant has killed both the lion4 and the bear; this uncircumcised Philistine will be like one of them, because he has defied the armies of the living God.
